Back to the Hagia Sofia then.
Ah ha! Looked, I managed an outside picture of something. Yay me :) You can see the original structure and how the minarets were added later.
I love the low-hanging chandeliers. We'll see these later in mosques too.
A six-winged Seraph. That's the only one that has a face. The rest on the dome are bursts of feathers.
Mary, Jesus, and ... Saint John? Someone help me out...
The Archangel Gabriel. This is all that's left of him. Accross the dome Saint Michael the Archangel used to have his own spot but he has not survived.
See in the dome? Six-winged Seraphs. One has a face the other is just feathers.
I actually rather liked the mix of Christian and Islamic religious symbols and influences. To me it actually seemed to mimic the culture of Turkey quite a bit and way it straddles both the east and west. Now adays the Hagia Sofia is neither church nor mosque but a museum. It still has the feel, the hushed, still atmosphere of a church. I guess if you're something for so long you never forget how to be that something.
